I reuploaded the entire show and redid the md5. It still says it fails so now what can I do? Can I just say f&*k it and leave it alone?

Did you try Tyler's advice? If the only thing failing is the .txt file, then you won't need to reupload the SHN's. Just remove the .txt file from the MD5.

I had this problem too.
Sometimes your ftp client may not upload all the files in their entirety. Therefore, everything looks fine on your hard drive, but on the server, the files are not complete.
Try comparing the sizes.
you could just right click (click properties) and check the file sizes of both files (your hd and the server) to make sure they match.
I find the easiest way tho, is to select all the files again and try to upload them. Most clients will then ask 'do you wish to replace file1.shn (1212024 kb) with file1.shn (34324.kb) If the file sizes dont match, upload that file again. Repeat for all.
I also got an e-mail when it failed. so check your e-mail. i think it even lists which files are bad.

jaguaracer's sollution is true for .shn files, but some users have run into the md5 failing issue where the md5 part that failes is the actual hash for the .txt file itself. The solution to this is to edit the .md5 to take out the reference in the md5 for the .txt file, and have the md5 look at only the .shn files for the check.

to edit the md5, just right click and choose 'edit' and then delete the 'old' md5 in your upload directory, then put the new one in there, then re-try
